Bette cookie policy

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small data file that stores internet settings. Almost all websites use cookie technology. This is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time this website is visited from the same terminal, the cookie and the information stored in it is either sent back to the website that created it (first party cookie) or to a different website, to which it belongs (third party cookie). The website recognises that you have already visited the website with this browser and in some cases, varies the content that appears on the screen.

Some cookies are extremely useful, as they can improve the user experience on a new visit to a website that you have already visited several times. Provided you are using the same terminal and the same browser as before, cookies remember your preferences or how you use a web page, for instance, and tailor what is shown on the screen to your personal interests and needs, to make it more relevant.

Depending on their function and intended use, cookies can be divided into four categories*: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.

Your cookie settings on this website

Cookies on this website not requiring user consent

Strictly necessary cookies are also called “essential” cookies and are the ones that you cannot do without if you want to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by Bette and are therefore known as first party cookies. They are only stored on your terminal while you are actually browsing the website. Strictly necessary cookies make sure, for example, that when changing web pages, the functionality of switching from http to https is enabled, thus ensuring compliance with the enhanced security requirements of data transmission. Last but not least, a cookie like this will also save your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website. Your approval is not required to use strictly necessary cookies.

The functions of this web page cannot disable strictly necessary cookies. You can disable cookies in general in your browser at any time.

Categories*

Depending on their function and intended use, cookies can be divided into four categories*: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.

Strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are required so that you can navigate through our website and use its features. Without these cookies, functionalities such as retaining the actions you have taken during your visit (e.g. your search options) cannot be enabled, even if you are only navigating between the individual pages of the website.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies allow a website to store details that have already been provided (such as adding products to a wish list) and offer the user improved and more personalised functions. Functionality cookies are used, for example, to facilitate requested functions such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymised information, they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Performance Cookies

Performance cookies collect information about how a website is used – such as which pages users visit most often and whether they get error messages from a web page. These cookies do not save any information that could identify the user. The information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore analysed anonymously. These cookies are only ever used to improve the performance of a website and therefore the user experience.

Cookies for marketing purposes

Cookies for marketing purposes are used to selectively deliver advertisements that are relevant to users and are based on their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times an advert appears and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They record whether or not you have visited a website. This information can be shared with third parties such as advertisers. Cookies for improving targeting and advertising are often linked to the web page functionalities of third parties.

Using cookies at www.bette.de

Like most of the websites that you visit, www.bette.de also uses cookies to improve the user experience, both on a single visit and on repeated visits to the website. You will be able to change web pages quickly and easily, for instance, or create a wish list and share products with others.

 

Cookies are either used by our website (first party cookies) or are set by other websites whose content appears on our website (third party cookies). These third-party providers can set cookies when you are logged-in to their web pages and visit our website. Bette GmbH und Co. KG has no influence over the cookie settings of these websites. Please visit the websites of third-party providers to obtain more information about how they use cookies.

Managing and deleting cookies

We have provided the above button as a convenient way to reject or approve cookies requiring user consent. You can also block and delete cookies by changing your browser settings. Most browsers allow you to manage your cookies by accepting or rejecting all cookies or by only accepting specific types of cookies. The procedure for managing and deleting cookies can be found in the help function integrated into your browser.

Performance cookies: user tracking

Our website uses Google Analytics to collect information about how users interact with the website and its contents. Bette GmbH & Co. KG uses this information to ensure that the website creates added value for those who visit it, by customising content for you personally, for example.

If you delete all your cookies, you must run the opt-out process again specifically for Google performance cookies, as in this case, the opt-out function you have selected is no longer recorded. This also applies if you visit this website from other terminals. If your security settings are too high and the cookie is blocked, we cannot implement your opt-out request. You will be informed if this is the case and should repeat the opt-out process with lower security settings.
